    Jeanette G's Note:

    Our local television station here in Houston has a segment on Sundays that airs local restaurants and it's recipes. I have been waiting and waiting for this one! This Cilantro Cream Sauce is served over Chicken Enchiladas and they are to die for in my opinion. This cream sauce is absolutely evil :) It's a very very rich sauce and should be avoided by all dieters! I made this and poured it over some chicken enchiladas which came out great but now I'm thinking of a pasta dish and substituting the alfredo sauce with this one. The possiblities are endless with this recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

      I too put it over some chicken enchiladas. Man it was fantastic. This was a very simple recipe to make. I can't wait until summer when all my fresh cilantro starts producing in my herb garden. This will be a great recipe to use it up. I'm always looking for new ways to use up my cilantro.

      This is so delicious! I used it as a cream sauce mixed with seafood stock for shrimp and clams over pasta. This is truly a keeper recipe. Thanks so much.
